  2. I use greek yogurt instead of sour cream. I also love a great tzatziki sauce to put on just about anything!

  3. I like to use it as a dip!

  4. I love Oikos!! I think my favorite way to eat it is paired with hot oats. I love the contrast!

  5. I love to use it in my baked goods like banana bread. It keeps the bread moist and delicious.

  6. Cold oatmeal! I’m thinking about doing that for breakfast this morning :)

  7. I love Oikos greek yogurt! I use the yogurt to make different sauces creamier, like tezziki or in my mexican sauce for enchilladas or as a salad dressing of sorts. Delicious!

  8. I love putting yogurt in my smoothies – it makes them thick, creamy, and delicious!!

  9. I like to use Greek yogurt to make a cucumber dill sauce for either gyros or as a topping for marinated chicken or beef. Of course, it’s great with fruit and granola too. :)

  10. I love to mix it with hummus…it’s a great dip for veggies that is creamier than hummus alone and higher in protein (and it lets you stretch your pennies a little farther…) :)

  11. I use it in quiches as a substitute for the heavy cream! I’ve even used it in the crust instead of so much butter- just a bit of yogurt, olive oil, salt and flour and you’ve got a nice base for a savory tart :)

  12. I love putting a layer of yogurt UNDERNEATH my pumpkin oatmeal–such a creamy, cool contrast is delicious!

  13. I like plain yogurt mixed with salsa overtop my eggs
    ..booooy howdy

  14. A dollop on top of chili…the best!

  15. The two best ways to use greek yogurt:

    savory…I love to add scallions, dill and garlic to yogurt and top it on homemade burritos, rice and beans, etc. Twenty times better than sour-cream!

    and sweet…I have a certain breakfast I eat every morning…a TJ’s blueberry waffle with a layer of mashed banana, peanut butter, raspberry jam, and a dollop of greek yogurt with a sprinkling of cinnamon on top. It’s sooooo wonderful, and the contrast of the warm waffle and the cold yogurt is delicious.

  16. I use it for a dip, yum!

  17. I like to use the plain yogurt in chicken or tuna salad instead of mayo. I also put it on my baked potatos in place of sour cream!

  20. I like to use it in place of mayonnaise in certain recipes. But, honestly – my favorite is just with a bit of honey.

  28. Love Oikos!! I love using a big dollop of Greek yogurt on quasi-Mexican dishes like enchiladas or quesadillas. So much healthier than sour cream, and has a nice unique tang to it!

  29. I like making yogurt sauces (like raita) to go with the spicy Indian/Middle Eastern dishes I like to make.

  30. I love it on top of this black bean and butternut squash chili with swiss chard: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Black-Bean-Chili-with-Butternut-Squash-and-Swiss-Chard-234146. It adds such a delicious richness to an already amazing dish!

  31. extra protein in smoothies – yum! or as a sub for sour cream with healthy quesadillas made with flaxseed tortillas and low-fat cheese…

  32. One of my favorite ways to eat yogurt is in overnight cold oats.
    I combine soymilk/or almondmilk, chia seeds, oatmeal and flavorings to the yogurt, and mix it up and wait for morning!

  33. I mix in some diced cucumber, cumin, paprika and garlic to make a raita. Perfect for spicy dishes and curries!

  34. I have a daily shake with it (and soy milk, frozen banana, almond butter and spinach). I make all my dips now with it. And I love the tangy taste of overnight oatmeal made with 1/2 yogurt and 1/2 soy milk
